A Message From The Players

Recommended Posts

 

Unfortunately there are people in our support who sing "We'll support you evermore" when what they actually mean is "We'll support you up to four"...... 

 

or three in your case.

 

Yes - it could be car crash viewing tomorrow - many of us have been there before, and no doubt we will see dark times agains, but it is during these tough times that we all need to stand firm in the support of OUR CLUB - OUR TEAM - OUR TOWN. When the team does win the League Cup or Scottish Cup or some league title along the way it will more than compensate for the dark times.

 

The last time tomorrows visitors Partick Thistle won a major Scottish honour (League, SC or LC) I'd hazard a guess you were not even born.

 

Since 1971 when Thistle won the LC I've seen Saints win the Anglo Scottish Cup, win the Scottish Cup, win the League Cup and watched them take part in four different European competitions.

 

Teams like St Mirren will always tend to go through ups and downs - but when you compare our record in the last few decades even in comparision to other so-called bigger sides like Aberdeen & Motherwell we have done really well.

 

Be proud of our club and what we have achieved.

 

COYS KTF.

I meant that I would rather leave the ground if getting pumped than shout abuse at the players, or manager. It was a throw away comment I'm always proud to be a bud was even one of the few remaining in Hampden to clap the team that had lost to Rangers, but your right I wasn't alive when thistle won a cup.

I'd hope most of my posts reflect that I do KTF, though my drole sense of humour may make it appear differently.

Mates a Thistle fan they are bringing a huge vocal support sold out away stand and two sections of the West.

They really fancy their chances of pumping us.

No they've no'.

They had sold 1500 as of last night. West stand tickets on sale at the ground today.

Big support though.

Okay , it doesn't actually specify but I remember them saying at the time , 4500 Buddies. I'd put my wages on it , but that crowd were fantastic , a core support giving there all and to be honest that day was just as sweet as the final , moreover because we led the match from the 8th minute and never went behind plus it was the first time Danny had led the team to victory against that mob. .

That was a super day, one of those days when being in our support was a total blast, noisy, funny and really spirited.

From saving the penalty at 1 each to going 3 - 1 up was as good a spell of St Mirren play as I've ever seen. I think Thompson asked the support a few days before that match to get behind the team and put aside recent disappointments; and we did.

Indeed , it is a game that , anyone whom was there will never forget . The extended Buddies celebration for Isma's first goal , then the extended celebration when Samson saved(aye , get up ye Mulgrew) , yet more crazy celebration as Gowser slots home our penalty courtesy of Gary wacking the ball off Charlie(aye get it up ye Mulgrew x2) and then Thompson scores to make it 3(courtesy of that great cross into the box from Cheesy) and the Saints end goes in to indescribable raptures , Buddies jumping up and down hugging each other as others run down the steps to try and get close to our hero. .

Supporting the Saints don't get much better than that game. .

Another memory from that day was looking up the stairs on my way out to see Santaponsa singing "Where's ya treble gone. ."

What happened to getting behind the team today? I'm surrounded my moaning 'fans' in the family stand, booing the players- all thinking they're experts- they're ruining the game, which is bad enough- it's almost as though some people want us to lose today.

I spoke to one of the players today and he asked me to put a wee note out to the fans.

The players appreciate that everyone is feeling frustrated, they are feeling it too. They are absolutely determined to put it right.

They have asked that everyone gets right behind them from the off tomorrow, whether you appreciate it or not it makes an enormous difference to them.

I think they all feel a bit on edge based on the conversation I had. We need to do our bit to boost that confidence as much as we can.

So, if you are going tomorrow, please put on your positive shoes, and give the team every encouragement from the first whistle.

Hopefully we will see a response.

COYS

Ah well

Surprised at the fans? I was actually, even when we're winning some idiots in the family stand are shouting abuse.

Must've been a few isolated individuals because from where I was sitting, in the main stand, it sounded as if the support really got behind the team, more than I've heard in previous games. It really is quid pro quo, however, and the team did very little to lift the fans IMO.

Yip, I thought the fans were decent today. Obviously there was a lot of booing at full time, which I don't have a problem with.

During the game I thought the fans were in the main very supportive.

I'm sick of the guy behind me in W1, does nothing but abuse the players; I doubt he cheers when we score to be honest. The guy's a f**king wanker.

I had the misfortune to sit in that section today and can only agree with you and perhaps add in another half dozen screeching arseholes. Twats.
